A Knitting Funk
Ever been in a knitting funk? Well, I am. Can't think of anything I really want to make, yarn isn't inspiring me (try to to be alarmed, I am) and I'm blah about it all. But I WANT to knit. I'm bummed that I can't find the PERFECT yarn for Clapotis. I'm not spending $100 for a scarf, so there goes the yarn it calls for and some suggested substitutes. I washed the baby sweater the other night and fell even more in love with the yarn. It is even softer! Would I be kicked out of all knitting circles if I knit the clap with that? Hmmm...$6 or $100 for a scarf I'll wear about 2 months out of the year. Drawback? Not hand dyed like I really wanted. I love the random look of hand dyed yarn. What to do?
Did you know that there are approximately 4 weeks of school left? That teenagers completely forget how to behave when they have summer on the brain? Someone please explain the following:
1 - How, after 2 years, have we forgotten that we have a bedtime of 9pm (yes, it is early but you try getting them out of bed at 6)? Why is this an issue EVERY FREAKING NIGHT?
2 - Why can't we be civil to each other? If you poured the glass of milk for your brother (because it is your job at dinner), can't you bring it to the table? Why must we have a fight over putting napkins on the table? I know, I just should stop feeding the little
3 - If I say, "no computer until you practice the flute", why are you suprised when I ground you from said computer because you didn't practice the flute before you got on the computer?
4 - If you don't like the way your sister looks at you, then don't look at her!! (same goes for breathing, walking, talking, living...you get the picture)
Did I mention that they leave for the summer in about 5 weeks? Did I mention I'm losing my mind?
